Protectors in my own image.

In my family, a few of my relatives study the practice of Tibetan Buddhism and in this religion, there beings which are called Dharma protectors, and in my Re-Imagine theme, I had thought about illustrating these beings in my own way. My design at the moment is quite simplified because I feel that the designs that are given to the deities are sometime too over-complicated, especially the image on the left, and I find that I don't know what to focus on.

I would also like to incorporate textile pattern designs into my illustrations as well. Right now, the idea that I am having of incorporating the patten design to my drawings is much like the floral patterns that are making out the shape of the birds in the print on the right.
